In 1971 Congress launched the "War on Cancer" with the passage of the National Cancer Act. The American people were told a cure for cancer would be found within 5 years, in time for the Bicentennial. Instead, more people are now dying from this disease than ever before, and cancer has become a multi-billion-dollar industry.

What went wrong with the battle plan?
Where does the responsibility lie?
Are there promised options that policy-makers have not supported?
And is there any hope for the one million new cancer patients diagnosed yearly across America?

In this one-hour video tape, you'll hear frank answers to these questions from three noted science writers.
